Eating on Holidays Review

Hi,

Well the Labor Day holiday is over.  Last post we talked about eating on holidays.  How well did you do?

Here is my breakdown just to give you an example.  Start weight = 181 pounds.

Picture is a Labor Day parade.

Friday after work did an extra heavy workout – no cardio afterwards.  Worked up quite a sweat.

Ate out at a Japanese restaurant and had teriyake salmon and one draft beer.  Everything tasted great. 

Had a small protein drink around 8:30 in the evening. 

Got up around 6:45am did my morning stretches and went to the gym for a quick bodyweight workout.  Only had a cold bottle of water.

Did several new exercises that I saw online Friday night.  Only took about 15 minutes but I was sweating up a storm.   Then hit the exercise bike for 3 – 3 minute miles with a 1 minute rest in between (slow pedaling).  That was it.

Went home, showered and got about my day.  I decided to not eat until lunch time.  This is unusual for me to do, but thought I would try it anyhow. 

Got really hungry around 11 am, but lasted until 12:30pm. 

Over the weekend I did eat some junk food.  I had 1 soda (not the diet kind), some potato chips (is there a worst food for you on the planet?), some ice cream and a couple of beers. 

Also ate a bunch of fruit and vegetables and protein. 

Ate a lot of carbs on Sunday so Monday morning went to the gym and had another extra long workout.   Ate mostly protein and vegetables on Labor Day itself.

End of weekend weight was 181 pounds.  So mission accomplished. 

Now the point of this isn’t to brag.  It was only meant to show you how simple it is to maintain your healthy lifestyle over a holiday.  And to still enjoy the holiday.

Pay attention to the details and eating on holidays will not be a concern ever again.

Thanks
